WolfA Technological Marvel: the Perfect Wildlife Design on the Perfect Tableau
 - Each abstract pattern is exquisite in its own right, but when combined together, the varying curved and straight lines capture the wolf’s distinctive likeness in outstanding detail.
 - The coin’s large diameter (50 mm, or two inches) allows even the smallest detail to shine, adding to the intricacy and complexity of the engraved design.
 - The texture of the wolf’s fur lends itself beautifully to a layering of repetitive abstract patterns, which adds a stunning complexity to this fresh artistic take on the traditional wildlife portrait.
 - Zentangle Art represents the perfect marriage of technique and design: the high-precision engraving and finishing techniques are a powerful testament to the outstanding craftsmanship and technical expertise of the Royal Canadian Mint engravers.
 - The large, two troy ounce pure silver planchet makes the perfect, large-size tableau for the highly desirable grey wolf.

The Great Gray Wolf, An Original Work of Art!
The design by Canadian artist Jori Van Der Linde features an unique side-profile view of a revered icon of the American wilderness, the gray wolf (Canis lupus). Its familiar silhouette, distinctive features and steely gaze provide a framework for a life-like portrait. The texture of the wolf’s fur lends itself beautifully to a layering of repetitive abstract patterns, which adds a stunning complexity to this fresh artistic take on the traditional wildlife portrait. Precision engraving and multiple finishes ensure that each pattern is kept distinct from the others, with shaded elements and thicker lines to provide contrast and depth to the overall composition.

The Grey Wolf
A lone wolf in the snow, howling to its pack. It's a true thrill to wildlife lovers when they catch a glimpse of the mythic wolf in the wild! Although they were held in high esteem for eons by Native Americans because of their spirits, wolves have been eradicated throughout most their range in North America, partly by hunters for trophies, and partly by ranchers as pests. However, wolves have been making a comeback recently and have been reintroduced to several locations, including national parks. Wolves play an important role by preying on big game animals and helping to control their population, including eliminating aged and diseased animals. Though they hunt in packs, wolves do not view humans as prey.

The largest member of the canine family, the Grey Wolf varies in color from grizzled gray or black to pure white. This animal tends to live, travel and hunt in a pack, which usually includes the alpha mother and father, their pups and several younger animals. Grey Wolves develop close relationships and strong social bonds. They often demonstrate deep affection for other members of their pack, and may even sacrifice themselves to protect the family unit!

The howl of a wolf pack sends shivers down even the most stalwart spine. Wolves traverse vast distances in their territory each day, seeking to bring down their prey, including animals much larger than themselves, such as deer, moose and caribou! Some wildlife experts believe that their howling - that eerie calling card that is unique to this species - is a key element of territory establishment, acting both as a warning to unaffiliated wolves and a call to assemble to the members of the pack itself.
